As it is well mentioned in The Tanzania Constitution 1977 that "Every person has a right to live and to the protection of his life by the society in accordance with the law".Then as I come to read a bit 'deeper' on the subject I get to know that,according to the Tanzanian Penal Code,murder and treason are punishable by death[Penal Code Cap 16(Revised Edition 2002) sections 197 and 39(1)(b) respectively. My concern is,the death penalty might appear to constitute a violation of the Right to Life. Naomba mchango wenu wajuvi wa sheria. NB; kama pana mapungufu yeyote katika kuiwasilisha mada mtanirekebisha,kwani uelewa wangu katika masuala haya si mpana sana. Wasalaam.
